Jesus Can’t Get A Job
Remember the movie The Passion of the Christ? It was one of the highest grossing movies of all time and has been voted the most controversial movie of all time.
Well, the actor, Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus can’t get any acting jobs anymore. According to this article:
The actor recalled Gibson’s offering him the role of Jesus in the film, then calling him back to beg him not to take it:
“He said, ‘You’ll never work in this town again.’ I told him, ‘We all have to embrace our crosses.’ ”
But the actor noted that Gibson wasn’t far off the mark when he spoke of the damage playing Jesus could do to his career.
“Jesus is as controversial now as he has ever been,” Caviezel said. “Not much has changed in 2,000 years.”
Caviezel said he doesn’t worry about the career price he paid with that film — a global box-office smash that led to fewer, not more, film offers for him. “The awards, the hall of fame” that actors get into here on Earth, he said, don’t matter to him. His reward, he said, will come in heaven.
“We have to give up our names, our reputations, our lives to speak the truth,” Caviezel said.
Pretty interesting, huh? Actually, pretty sad. If he played a gay cowboy screwing another ‘dude’ in the mountains and cheating on his wife, he’d be all set! Or if he acted more like the nut-job Charlie Sheen womanizing, cheating, prostitute-loving, drug-snorting he’d be loved by everyone and working all the time!
How dare him play Jesus…the HORROR!
He’s a great actor. What a shame. You can read the rest here. It’s a good article.
